   Jul-19-09 Alekhine vs C de Montmartre, 1925 (replies)
Zurahn: It doesn't seem to me the pun is intended as an insult to Alekhine but to NN. That is, NN played as if he were drunk (or Alekhine made it look that way).
   Aug-29-07 The World vs G Timmerman, 2007 (replies)
Zurahn: In 808 games in the database I have (2.6 million games through 2004), white scores 57% after 6. Nh3 compared to 49% for 6. Nf3 with a total of 1934 games. Just a statistic I figured I'd share since I'm not going to be much use in evaluating this line. 6. Bf4 scores 33% in just 18 ...
   Jul-14-07 A Meek vs Morphy, 1855 (replies)
Zurahn: Rybka's analysis after about a minute comes up with this after 9...d6 1. (-0.46): 10.Qb5 a6 11.Qd3 Be6 12.Na3 d5 13.0-0 dxe4 14.Qxe4 Re8 15.Bd2 White certainly wasn't out of it.

Zurahn: Chessmaster 10th Edition lists the mainline of 3...h6 as 4. d4 exd4 5. c3 dxc3 6. Nxd3 and then branches off to either 6...Bb4/d6/Nf6 (although this line I doubt is the best). The database only lists 42 occurances with the most popular response being 4. 0-0. Other ...
   Jun-13-07 Rogoff vs R Blumenfeld, 1976 (replies)
Zurahn: Why is this opening classified as A00 instead of A20?
   Jun-12-07 Bacrot vs Kasimdzhanov, 2006 (replies)
Zurahn: 28...Rd7?? Wouldn't 28...Kh7 leave black with a big advantage? Am I missing something or that just a huge blunder?
   May-21-07 Moll vs Falkbeer, 1864 (replies)
Zurahn: 12...Qh4 and 12...Rh1+ are both mate in 3. 12...Qh4 13. Qh5 Rxh5 14. exd5? Qh1#
   May-21-07 Nimzowitsch vs Systemsson, 1927 (replies)
Zurahn: I love how nearly every white move is annotated as "!" XD.
